Clark Terry : Color Changes
This is one of flügelhornist Clark Terry's finest albums. Terry had complete control over the music and, rather than have the usual jam session, he utilized an octet and arrangements by Yusef Lateef, Budd Johnson, and Al Cohn. The lineup of musicians lives up to its potential, and the charts make good use of the sounds of these very individual stylists. The material, which consists of originals by Terry, Duke Jordan, Lateef, and Bob Wilber, is both rare and fresh, and the interpretations always swing.
Yamamoto Sound Craft : Vacuum tube phone equalizer amplifier EQB-01
The stand-alone EQB 01 tube phono equalizer and preamplifier uses 4 x 6AK5W Telefunkens for an output of 25V. The frequency response is 30Hz - 150kHz (+-0.5db) with selectable cartridge loading of 47k/1k/100 ohms. Output impedance is 4.8 kohm with an amplification factor of 54dB/1kHz. The chassis measures 420mm W x 290mm D x 94mm H and weighs 6.3 kg. A high output moving coil cartridge can be coupled directly to the EQB 01 while a low output MC requires the insertion of a Yamamoto SUT-1 step-up transformer
Yamamoto Sound Craft : Vacuum Tube Power Amplifier A-011 (2A3 single, without output tubes)
Yamamoto Sound Craft of Japan is a high-end machine shop. They produce in-house whatever custom parts their audio division requires to go Kai-Zen - build big dreams in tiny steps. Wooden head shells. Cartridge parts. Precision meters. Teflon tube sockets with gold or silver-plated phosphor bronze (copper/zinc alloy) contacts. Wooden horns. Wooden tube sockets. Resin-impreganted Japanese Cherry wood panels that are hydraulically compressed, then vacuum-formed and phenol-injected to obtain Bakelite-type qualities and become hard enough to be precision CNC milled. Vintage-style tube shields. Solder lugs using the same Complite wood composite bases as the cover panels. C-core output, power and choke transformers. Ebony footers using NOS Japanese stock. Hermetically encapsulated coupling capacitors in Ebony cylinders to prevent long-term leakage. Custom speaker terminals. You get the picture. Off the shelf and over the counter are two phrases Shigeki Yamamoto does not understand
